Paint Your Camera

White - A symbol of purity and innocence, will become the motivation for your creativity.

Gift giving during Christmas and other occasions has become the norm all over the world. The act of gifting also conveys the thoughts of the giver. Everyone wants their gifts to be heartwarming, and also something creative that will touch the receiver.

It is very normal to buy a present and then to give it away. But if you infuse the gift with your heart and soul, then it will be a special, one and only gift! Let’s take a look at how a guy with a knack for drawing brainstorms a X-mas present for his girlfriend!

“I am Maomao, I like to draw. In order to give my girlfriend an unforgettable and unique gift, I thought of using my magic wand, which is my marker pens, to conjure up some magic! My girlfriend mentioned that she wanted to pick up photography. Hence, I thought of Lomography cameras as they are simple to operate and use. I started hunting for a suitable present on Lomography Online Shop. I began to look at white cameras. I found the elegant Lomo LC-A+ white , cute Fisheye 2 White edition , Princess like Diana F+ Edelweiss , diminutive Diana Mini White , gun shaped Colorsplash Camera

After considering that my girlfriend likes to hang out with a bunch of friends and is an extrovert, I selected Fisheye 2 White edition as my gift, and got down to work!"

Henceforth, it became an unique Fisheye 2, the only one in the world, behold the wonder of white cameras! They look ordinary but can be easily transformed into something special.

    It's a good idea. I think I'm going to strip my Mini down though and paint some of the white bits black. I just hope I can put it back together again!

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
